National Council of La Raza
This report provides evidence that Latino youth have a greater potential to diversify and enhance America’s workforce when they have access to broader education and career networks. Funded by the PepsiCo Foundation and Shell Oil Company, the study identifies common challenges to education and career success that Latino youth face. The report documents the role that NCLR’s after-school initiative, the Escalera Program: Taking Steps to Success, plays in improving participants’ academic and career preparation, as compared to their non-Escalera peers.
